This is a retreat (online) meant for those longing to find again the simplifying rhythm of their lives. In a time of pandemic, of prolonged “lockdowns” and curtailments of our social lives, the day offers a time to taste the wisdom that “less is more,” and find our way back into that spacious and fecund “emptiness” where the simplifying promise of the divine awaits us. We will explore this path with the help of poetic thinkers who faced the essential wildness of life with fierce courage and tenacity of mind. Our guides, Meister Eckhart and Julian of Norwich, were medieval seers whose vision took shape in times of uncertainty and anxiety. We will encounter their heartful wisdom in conversation with several modern poets, all of whom knew the risks and rewards of journeying into the Simple Center of the real. Come ready to be startled and encouraged, provoked and consoled, as together we reach into deep reaches of the divine mystery within and all about us.
